ICA & NACAG

The International Clergy Association (ICA) is a body of ordained ministers of God formed on January 31st, 2008, in Accra, Ghana, under the leadership of Reverend Dr. Charles Abban, founder, president, and life patron. ICA provides a collaborative network of pastors across the globe, such that a pastor will have preaching appointments in other affiliated churches when he or she is out of the home country.

NACAG, on the other hand, is a body of ordained ministers of God or persons called by God to do his work in a professional manner. NACAG acts as an advocate for ministers of God in Ghana and helps to ordain and license member pastors who have gone through those processes already or wish to be re-ordained or licensed.

For the most part, ICAD 2023 presents a unique opportunity for Africans in the diaspora to work together towards the economic, social, and spiritual empowerment of Africa. It is a chance to build lasting relationships and to consider Africa as a home. The conference is open to everyone who shares in the vision of transforming Africa into a prosperous continent.
